Was your Mother right…is breakfast really the most important meal of the day? If you answered, YES, than you are correct! According to Web MD, skipping breakfast can lead to a number of problems when trying to lose weight or keep off weight. Still in doubt? Here’s what we know:
- Breakfast jump-starts your metabolism. Research shows that when your body receives food in the morning, it tells your brain that you’re going to need to start working to digest it. This wakes up the system and warms up the metabolism so it’s ready to work throughout the day.
- Breakfast keeps you from binging. By skipping breakfast, one tends to make bad food choices for lunch. Choices with higher calories and less nutritional value.
- Breakfast improves your mood. A healthy morning meal can help regulate your blood sugar, which in turn improves your overall mood.
- And let’s not forget the research-confirmed weight loss and health benefits of including protein in your breakfast rather than just coffee or carbs.
